News from David Wilson Homes
In 2015, Nicholsons were given the opportunity to design and build the show gardens at a local David Wilson site – Adderbury Fields.
We were delighted to be involved with such a quality driven company and enjoyed pushing a new concept in terms of show home garden design. We worked on individual designs to compliment this attractive North Oxfordshire Country site. We made each garden unique and developed the design to celebrate the space.
We won the contract with short notice at a busy time of year and so designer Liz Nicholson engaged the support of her husband Niel as the contracts manager – he rarely gets out of the office these days!
Together they responded to the short lead times and the high expectation for quality with both thoroughly enjoying being back in the gardens. The plans were then drawn up by our landscape architect Karen as below with a more formal garden in the west and a round garden in the East – this contrast allowed buyers to see options with their space. We also designed a very formal frontage to give a certain class to the site!

We were delighted to hear today from the Head of Marketing at David Wilson Homes Mercia Region that we contributed towards the Adderbury site winning one of their group competitions….to quote;
As you are aware Barratt Developments and their house building brands take great care in creating welcoming and well executed sales environments. In 2015 the Group decided to re-introduce the sales arena of the year award. The award is available for any of the operating businesses to enter, with a view to putting forward their very best sales arena to include landscaped areas, sales offices and show homes. There is particular emphasis in this sales arena award on the execution and specification of landscaping and its relevance to the planned development. I am pleased to confirm that our Adderbury Fields Development was awarded Sales Arena of the Year for Standard Housing.
This is an accolade we are naturally delighted with as the competition is fierce across the operating business. Our success is down to the dedication and execution of all our suppliers who helped create such a fantastic sales arena. Nicholson’s helped create an outstanding external sense of place with their execution of show home gardens and sales arena frontage.
We are very excited to have had the opportunity to be part of such a dynamic company. Their attention to detail is very inspiring and we think the Adderbury site is a great place to invest.
